Do not buy: The controller is fine, but drive inside could be utter garbage

Summary: I got the product for basically nothing from dell after redeeming promotional credit, but nonetheless, I was disappointed to find this drive inside. I would recommend steering clear of this product..
Pros: usb 3.0 but not fully saturated (no onboard ram like on the drivestation ddr)
Cons: Inside was a seagate (64mb cache 7200rpm drive) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148844 (not sure a 7200rpm drive would have been the best drive for a tight enclosure without a fan to dissipate heat) This particular drive has an exceptionally high level of failure rate-- i...
Summary: I would not recommend this purchase to anyone. I would return it if I could, but I waited to long.
Pros: Nice large drive
Cons: I got the drive to move large folders back and forth from my work and home systems. There is no way to turn the drive off. I have repeatedly ejected the drive and removed it from one system (after following proper procedure, ejecting, waiting and then powering down), and when reattaching the driv...
Summary: Time Will Tell if it lasts but I see no problems it does not spin if its unplugged, it just sits there. I can create multiple folders and save data from multiple devices. Just keep files current in case of issues.
Pros: Very Easy to use without software, virtually plug in and transfer data to a folder you created. You can do a system backup. Can Migrate files for a System Build/Reload or transfer to another computer.
Cons: It did not work on an older machine through USB 1.0 but I can use flash drive and push through machine with USB 3.0 I kinda figured that would be the only problem.
Summary: This is a nice backup drive, however the included backup software is bare basic and only allows for one backup type and that is a full backup. There is a continues setting but it does not allow for any custom settings. The only other choice is to set up a timed backup.
Pros: Easy to install, quiet, small foot print, fast USB 3.0 connection. The drive is working well.
Cons: Included backup software is very basic only allowing for full backup. No choices at all. I took off one egg for the lack luster backup software.
